  Description     : pragma for activating syntax extensions

The syntax pragma activates community provided syntax extensions to Perl. You
pass it a feature name, and optionally a scalar with arguments, and the
dispatching system will load and install the extension in your package.

The import arguments are parsed with Data::OptList. There are no standardised
options. Please consult the documentation for the specific syntax feature to
find out about possible configuration options.

The passed in feature names are simply transformed: function becomes
Syntax::Feature::Function and foo_bar would become Syntax::Feature::FooBar.
